Hanoi: Three foreigners and one Vietnamese were killed in an explosion of fireworks being prepared for Hanoi's millennium celebrations, official sources said on Wednesday.

Two sources, who asked not to be further identified, separately confirmed the deaths to a news agency. Vietnamese media also reported the deaths.

Vietnam Net online news service quoted Nguyen DucNhanh, director of the Hanoi police, as saying four pe ople were killed when two containers of fireworks "burned".

Three other people were injured, he was quoted as saying. "The reason for the fire is due to mistakes in the transportation process," Nhanh said.
